May 20, 2023 Pamela Breitberg Azeleas and more… Some Azaleas can grow quite tall. Here a Mountain Azalea (Rhododendron canescens) blooms in the Blue Ridge Mountains appropriately. This native is usually six to eight feet tall; but as is here, can reach up to fifteen feet in height. The Greek for rhodo is rose and dendron is tree; so shouldn’t suprise me such plants can reach such heights. Azaleas come in a variety of colors. Here is an Orange Azalea (Rhododendron austrinum), aka Flame Azalea. It is another naitve found in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Quite a show off.

It is a highly poisonous, evergreen, native shrub that is often found near Rhododendrum thickets. The flowers are bell shaped similar to other spring blooming woodland flowers.

In the autumn, what was a cluster of white flowers produces clusters of bright red berries that become black as they ripen. Being a wayfarer this morning myself it seemed coincidence I’d spy such a plant. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Share this:PinterestPrintRedditEmailLinkedInTwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Beautiful. I have 100’s of great nature shots that I would like to start selling. How do I go about doing that. You can send me an email too, if you prefer, at email@example.com. Thank you so much.
Honestly I do this just for fun and sharing. So I am not one that can really help you much. Try Etsy? But you’ll need a sales tax number. Or just go into local gift stores…..they might show your work on consignment. Good luck to you!
Good ideas. Thank you. 🙂
